Descendants of John Cochran


Generation No. 5


28. Deaf Robert16 Cochran (Stephen15, Robert14, James13, John12, John11, John10, Robert9, Alan8, John7, Robert6, William5, Gosiline4, John3, William2, Waldeve ? Walddemar1 de Cochrane) was born February 26, 1659/60 in Mayboy, Londonderry, Ireland, and died August 1740. He married Jean Stephenson February 25, 1696/97. She was born Abt. 1670 in of Rosnealong, and died March 1739/40 (Source: Original manuscript written by Robert Cochran now in possession of the Presbyterian Historical Society in Philadelphia, PA.).

Notes for Deaf Robert Cochran:
The hisotry of the COCHRAN family was written by Deaf Robert about the time that some members of his family emigrated to Pennsylvania. They settled in what is now Chester County. The original document is in the possession of the Presbyterian Historical Society in Philadelphia. In his writings he mentions several Cochrans who "came" to Pennsylvania, rather than "went" indicating he may have been in PA when he wrote his later documents. His family dates all come from the manuscript.

Walddemar1 de Cochrane) was born Abt. 1670 (Source: Family info from Grace Cochran Bobrowski of Fargo, ND, April 1997.). He married Janet Brown. She was born Abt. 1680.

Notes for John Cochran:
All the following information comes from the FTM webpage of Earl Lindsay Darrah, 5106 Rolling Hill Court, Tampa, FL 33617, 813-987-2159, E-mail address: <edarrah1@tampabay.rr.com> has John Cochran born Abt. 1670 in Northern Ireland, and died Abt. 1730 in Northern Ireland. He married GRACE ? [NEE?] COCHRAN Abt. 1690 in Northern Ireland.
Notes for JOHN COCHRAN:
V'Anne Cochran Didzun mentioned to me one time that Rosalie Bork Harnden had done a lot of work on the Cochran family history. Among the many pages of information Rosalie sent to me was a note made in July, 1862 by a J. L. Cochran from information in the Cochran family Bible. My guess is that the information in the family Bible was written by or at the behest of Amos Glass Cochran, and that J. L. Cochran is Amos Glass Cochran's grandson John L. Cochran. Amos indicates that his father's name is Glass, and that his grandfather is Robert. Amos goes on to write that Glass Cochran's grandfather (Robert's father) is John Cochran. Too bad he wasn't as specific about John Cochran's wife. Hopefully this note will unearth the family Bible. I've heard that someone in Texas has the original.
Notes for GRACE ? [NEE?] COCHRAN:
We don't know Grace's maiden name as yet. In fact we don't know her first name either. I'm assuming that the family followed tradition and named their first daughter, Grace in this case, after the mother. Hopefully there is a reference in a misplaced family bible or some other record that will help us.
Children of JOHN COCHRAN and GRACE COCHRAN are:
2. i. ROBERT2 COCHRAN, b. Abt. 1690, Armagh Co, Northern Ireland; d. Abt. 1750, Northern Ireland.
ii. SAMUEL ? COCHRAN, b. Abt. 1691.
Notes for SAMUEL ? COCHRAN:
Relationship of Samuel to Robert is very unclear. Apparently there are references and possibly gravestones for Robert and a Samuel, but little more information. It's possible that Samuel could be a cousin.
